DP Photo Challenge: Evanescent
How much difference a few hours make. These two photos below were taken this past Tuesday afternoon. It was an exciting day in Tabby’s backyard.
Yes, it was officially a tornado rolling over Fort Pulaski and down the Savannah River. This picture was taken from the back porch….a little closer and I would have been cowering in the laundry room. But no damage for us, the fort wasn’t so lucky.
At dusk there was a break in the action and the birds took advantage of the feeder. I spotted a male painted bunting, one of my favorites. This photo was taken in the back yard.
Evanescent events, both of them.
Daily Post Photo Challenge: Danger
Here is a shot of Fort Pulaski in Georgia. This is the side of the fort that sustained the heaviest cannon fire from the Union Troops. This damage was ultimately the reason that the fort surrendered during the Civil War. For me not having experienced war, it is hard to imagine the “danger” that soldiers on both sides experience. But seeing the pockmarks in a brick structure, makes it more real.
Anyone visiting the Savannah area, Fort Pulaski is truly a worthy side trip. I hope you can come and see us.
Cee’s Black and White Photo Challenge: E & F
Tybee had its Irish Heritage Parade last Saturday. Since everyone loves a parade and it is St. Patrick’s Day…Here are two photos that fit Cee’s Challenge.
“E” is for Escapee. The Shriners support a great cause with some creative marchers.
“F” is for Feathers. The Junkaroo Band is always a crowd pleaser.

Daily Post Photo Challenge: Ambience
4:30 in the morning, as I rose to answer nature’s call, I looked out the window and this is what I saw. I ran down stairs to get my camera and stood on the porch in my nightie and bare feet. While I took several pictures, this is the only one that turned out because I didn’t have a tripod set up. I do think it demonstrates the special ambience of that moon-lite night.
DP Challenge: Names
One of the local attractions on Tybee Island, Doc’s Bar is decked out for Christmas. Ownership changed a few years ago and there was a bit of a dust up about naming rights. But it has stayed “Doc’s Bar” and remains a place for visitors and locals to enjoy.

Is he fishing? Or do we have a heron that is a Narcissist?
DP Photo Challenge: Magic
We have been having some foggy/hazy days here on Tybee. Here is a photograph of the Cockspur Lighthouse on a misty morning. The colors were soft and the aura was “Magic”.

Here are two shots of tiny fiddler crabs that live in the local swamp. The second picture is a crop/enlargement of the first, so that you can see detail. Fiddler crabs are critters that totally fascinate me….I watch them execute what appear to be military maneuvers on the sand and build cities of tubes. They attract various sea birds who eat the crabs. (More photo opportunities for me.) And, the colors of their shells are so beautiful.
I hope you like my interpretation of the “tiny” theme for this week.

Cee’s B & W Challenge: Through a Window
Here is a picture of a tree seen through a window of Fort Pulaski in Georgia.
Unfortunately the fort sustained significant damage during Hurricane Matthew and is not currently open. Once it opens and if you are in the area, it is a great place to visit. Lots of interesting things to see and do…for kids and adults alike.
